Now, in this newly expanded edition, Monta Z. Bryant provides more than 300 American Sign Language (ASL) signs, illustrated with the same clear, easy-to-understand photos and descriptions. Baby-specific signing techniques, songs, and games are also included to make learning fun and to quickly open up two-way communication. Parents will meet real signing families and learn how to make sign language a part of their everyday interactions with their children. Also included is a video featuring all the signs from the book. See the sign you want to learn come alive! This is a must-have for all parents, grandparents, and anyone else who spends time with preverbal children.
